    A lot of software that provides language-specific collation (sorting) has radical/stroke-order collation for Chinese.
    Operating systems, databases, and other applications and libraries provide such services.

    As a standalone library, ICU for example provides UCA-based collation with such a tailoring (delta from UCA):

    The Unicode standard only provides a default collation for all characters, which may or may not match one or more competing standards for each script.

    Best regards,
